Pours a clear, light amber color with a littl more than a finger of fluffy white head, retention is ok.

The scent is of caramel malt and sweet grains, some notes of hops.

The taste is of toasted caramel malts and grains. Hops that bring out a slight tea flavor are also noticeable.

Light body, smooth and clean feel, moderate carbonation.

This was really nice oktoberfest, nice balanced flavor and refreshing.

I have really gotten to enjoy some previously unavailable marzens(this one included) locally this fall and I'm pumped about it. Alas, autumn is but once a year. A: Medium copper amber with moderate carbonation S: malted slightly sugary sweetness with a fair presence of fruityyeastiness. T: Malts that are sweetened with sourwood honey and maybe a touch of brown sugar M: medium bodied with enough heft to bring the flavors of the beer through D: Very quaffable and smooth. Light enough to repeat but flavorful enough to satisfy. Prost Herbst!
